Another lovely surprise!
Man, it has been so very cold, cold, cold for us this week. We were to have a "dusting" of snow that turned into an inch or more (some places close got 2-3 inches) the temperature was 17 with wind chills at zero and the police worked more than 1200 accidents on the highways on Thursday alone. Yesterday it was still cold, but the flakes flew north and south of us...and today it is finally above freezing so the leftover snow is melting. The good thing is the wind has totally stilled so it is not so bad going outside. I had an appointment for my mammogram on Wednesday morning, got all my chores done and all my shopping done and I have hibernated since then. We were asked to conserve as much energy as we could during those days, no excessive usage if at all possible(no washers/dryers/computers/etc)...because of the strain on the Electric Plants and possible black outs...today, they finally lifted that restriction. Needless to say, I got some much deserved rest and got a lot of reading done on my Kindle!
Did you watch the opening ceremonies last evening? Weren't they grand? I am excited the Olympics are under way. Sochi, Russia is not that far from where I spent 2 years in Yalova, Turkey. That area of the world is very lovely when the weather cooperates, and they are warmer than most of us are here....ROFL! I will be glued to the TV in about another hour until bedtime as the games start about 1:30. I've gotten all my chores done, house is clean, laundry is done, me & cats have full tummies...so we are ready to pile up together and watch them.
I am still creating pages for Amy, to date, I have 70 pages for her to choose from for her books. I hope she likes them, I sent her an email with 58 of them in thumbnail size this morning....LMBO! Now, I am going to visit with Kyra, Miss Edna and Neli for a couple of minutes before I shut down for the afternoon and evening. Y'all have a great weekend and whatever you choose to do...make lots of memories to share!
Luv y'all! Mat Go Team USA!
